Abstract: With adequate precaution, dental procedures which are likely to cause haemorrhage in haemophiliac patients may now be performed with a greatly reduced risk. A case report of a 'moderate' haemophiliac who presented with acute pericoronitis is described. The operculum associated with an erupting molar tooth was excised using a laser beam. Pre- or post-operative infusion of Factor VIII was not required. The applications and possible implications of the use of this treatment modality are discussed.
